Hi I’m Louise and I live in Shrewsbury (Shropshire – UK) with my amazing husband Sam and my gorgeous baby Genevieve. I’m totally obsessed with tea, baking vegan cakes and trying to grow my own veggies. My passion is helping mums to feel good about themselves, to feel in control of their eating, to enjoy their food again (especially the cake and chocolate) and above all to ditch the diets for good!

I started Society Of Self-esteem after bouncing back from redundancy after working for the NHS for almost 6 years. I absolutely loved my work with the NHS Health Improvement Team – I was mentoring people to lose weight as well as co-ordinating and delivering confidence-building courses. I believe in this work so much that I decided to continue doing it all by myself! I just think it’s so important to address your attitudes around your eating/weight; you can’t manage your weight for good without looking at how you treat yourself. I have so many skills and tools that I learnt from my different roles within the NHS that I want to share with the world.
Since having my little girl I’ve been focusing on working with people online – we can connect anywhere in the world via the magic of video-calls! I have also got a new online course to help you learn the essential skills needed to manage your weight for life Click here to find out more about the No More Diets! Online course. In the future I would love to be able to offer my course ‘More Confident Me’ to vulnerable people via my local Food Bank project – watch this space, it will happen!

What people say about working with me:
“Had a one-to-one assessment with Lou, she is very professional, friendly and made me feel totally comfortable with opening up about what I wanted and what I felt was holding me back. Have found this first session really useful, and am very much looking forward to more! Highly recommend Society Of Self-esteem!” Sam D-T, Shrewsbury
“Louise’s dedication, enthusiasm and commitment has been evident throughout the [More Confident Me] course and is the reason why I have wanted to attend each week. It has been really interesting to take a step back and think about how I communicate my needs to others. I have already used some of the tools to make changes in the way I communicate to others and have been able to communicate my needs without conflict or negativity” Leanne – Newport
Louise is a registered Dietitian, a Food Relationship Coach and Confidence-building Facilitator as well as the founder of Society Of Self-esteem; a social enterprise helping you unlock your inner self-confidence and take control of your weight. Louise trained to be a Dietitian at Leeds Metropolitan University where she studied her undergraduate degree in Human Biology before completing her postgraduate diploma in Dietetics in 2008. Louise’s favourite things are; all things tea-related, cake, playing piano, gothic Victoriana and the colour purple!
Louise originally worked as a Dietitian from 2008-2009 at the Musgrove Park Hospital in Taunton before realising that what she really wanted to do was stop people ending up in hospital in the first place! In 2010, after working for 6 or 7 months at a Health Promotion Centre, she began working for the NHS Health Improvement Team as a weight-loss mentor. She enjoyed delivering weight-loss services for the award-winning “Why Weight?” Weight Management Team until the cuts to UK public services in 2013 lead to her eventually being made redundant in 2014. During her time with the Health Improvement Team Louise picked up a wide range of experiences alongside her weight-loss mentoring. One of her favourite roles was co-ordinating and delivering confidence-building courses and promoting emotional wellbeing.
Using the confidence-building skills in her own life has helped Louise bounce back from redundancy. The way that her work in weight management and confidence-building complemented each other, helped pave the way for the birth of Society Of Self-esteem. Louise’s considerable knowledge and experience helping 100s of people manage their weight for life, combined with her love of confidence-building means she can offer practical evidence-based tools to help you get control of your weight and eating habits – for life!
Since the birth of her first child in 2015, Louise has moved her services online. So if you want to work with Louise on a one-to-one basis, it doesn’t matter where in the world you are as long as you can get on the Internet!

“Before getting nutritional advice from Louise, I didn’t really have much concept of what was needed food wise to keep a good balance between getting enough energy to train for my first boxing match and making sure that I kept at the right weight. Louise’s advice was really clear and well thought out. Louise has a friendly approach which makes people feel much more comfortable; thanks to her support I achieved my target weight and have a much better understanding of weight management now.” H. Cordes, Taunton.
“I have been attending Louise’s child friendly weight management sessions for 5 weeks and it’s been the best thing I have done. It’s not just about what you eat or how much you eat, it’s about why we eat the way we do and how to change the way we think about food and taking responsibility for it. I would highly recommend it as it has worked wonders for me; I feel happier, healthier and more confident. Thank you for all your help and support.” Kelly F-W, Oswestry
“Weight management classes have been great – no pressure or judgements, just sound support, advice and encouragement!” H Howes, Oswestry
“Fantastic [weight management] course. Found it very helpful and easy to remember. Would definitely recommend it.” P.Leach, Oswestry
“Attended the Weight Management five week course & found it really useful as a ‘health check’ for my eating habits! Definitely worth investing in myself (for a change!) and signing up!” Katie Millard, Oswestry
